the boat looks aground fairly low in the tide....he should be on the boat and plugging the split around the keel[assuming] with fiberglass putty[the type that cures underwater ] thats only if he[the captain] is able enough to make repair and pump out...the sails up.... sail her off....

Sheesh.. he is about 5-6 feet above the waterline? How do you sail on hard ground?

Crazy tides I suppose - we don't have them in Lake Lanier.

Please don't blame the skipper, it looks like a rare case of tsunami hitting the bay once every 150 years. .

I crossed the bridge, up and back, on Saturday (in a car) and did not see this. I would guess she must have come off when the tide went up.
